Branca's Pitch follows 85 year-old former Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca as he writes his autobiography A Moment In Time with the philosophical and flamboyant ghostwriter, David Ritz. Ralph became infamous for losing the 1951 National League pennant to the New York Giants by giving up the dramatic "Shot Heard 'Round the World" home run to Bobby Thomson. Despite being branded a scapegoat for the rest of his life Ralph kept secret for 50 years about that fateful game and the 1951 Giants team. The film is a portrait of an aging man bent on righting his legacy because for 60 years he has viewed himself as a winner despite a public image as the ultimate loser. Written by Anonymous
